Subject: 4 Star Playhouse
This production Company was sort of a TV United Artists, founded By David Niven, Charles Boyer, Dick Powell, and Ida Lapino.
Who took turn starring and producing. The also did a great series called the Rogues. Later it became just a production company, one of the last I recall of were Burkes Law and Honey West.
This episode also has a slew of well recognised character actors from the 50's and 60 that were in things from Superman to Star Trek.
Also one other major star Carolyn Jones, when she was still trying to be a blonde film star, as a Bronx bimbo sort, and before she lost the dye Job, married Aron Spelling, and became Gomez's temptrist and male kid fantasy Mortica Addams in the original Addams Family TV show.
Decently well written...and just a hoot for all the people in it.
Subject: David N, good show!
I enjoyed the advertisement for Singer sewing machines, and then the show began, 25 minutes of a story of a bunch of guys, & one gal whose claim to fame doesn't seem to be be much but she's a cutey. Then questions begin from the characters & my interest stayed for the whole time. If you knew me, you would know why I adore the ending.

absolutely correct jazzfan, this is Four Star Playhouse which was sponsored by Singer.
I do hope the quality of this file is better the previously uploaded truncated version. As time permits, I hope to upload better quality versions of programs previously uploaded, and episodes not on archive.
Subject: Avoid This One
This is part of the series FOUR STAR PLAYHOUSE. It was previously uploaded with the ending cut off. It is such poor quality that's it unwatchable. Who ever uploaded this one just changed the name to Singer Playhouse.
Subject: Beautiful Story!
Now THIS is what we need more of on TV now.
I really enjoyed this. Good story, nicely put together, kept me completely interested the entire way through, and of course, David Niven, who I would pay good money just to watch him brush his teeth.
